What a real man is



I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just…. Genesis 18:19

Whoever fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge. Proverbs 14:26

Listen to your father who gave you life… Proverbs 23:22

Dad I read these scriptures and think of you.
You have shown me what a real man truly is by the way you live, love and provide for your family.  You are a blessing and will always be my hero!

Happy Birthday Dad!

I love you dearly,
Anna

Whoever you are I love you...


There is a buying for Target who must love Dachshunds.


And whoever you are I love you!
I always find the coolest dachshund things there. 
e.g.
 Tape dispenser for me, and sippy cups for my Wayway. :)

No more single digits

Shannie is the big “1” “0” today!




Happy Birthday joy of my life!
I’m so proud of the little lady you are becoming.
Of your gentle heart,
and your silly sense of humor.
I love just chatting with you and discovering 
the wonders of the world with you.
I know one day you are going to change the 
world with the gifts God has placed in you.
I know this because you have already changed mine…the very moment I looked upon that beautiful face of yours I was never the same.
You truly are my sunshine!

Love, Grammy

I made it through


Grief comes suddenly.
However, I have found it goes away in layers.
Recently I’ve felt another layer lift off me.
This is not caused by an event of any kind, it’s just the mercy of God as you walk through this valley, that removes the layers.
Often I don’t even realize the depth of each layers sorrow till it’s lifted off of me.
And as I make it through each layer I feel stronger and more alive than ever.
This one has brought a peaceful acceptance and a great expectation of what God has for me.

And with each layer I am making it through :)

My anniversary gift


Meet Salome!


 Her name means ~ peaceable, perfect, she that rewards.
And I just became her sponsor. :)  
I wanted to do something special for my anniversary yesterday.
I heard of a program through my local Christian radio station called Compassion in Jesus name….and how you could pick a child to sponsor by their Birthday. 
So I put my anniversary date in to see if there was a child with that birthday and was so excited there was!

So I not only have the wonderful privilege of sponsoring Salome I also was able to do it on her Birthday! 
I hope that made her Birthday special :)

I will be able to write to her and get to know her. I'm looking really forward to this. Maybe one day I will even go to meet her.  
So everyone pray for Salome and I will be updating from time to time on my new friend.

Got you on my mind

Happy Anniversary baby
Got you on my mind… more than ever.
I think back on our wedding day with such joy.
How we sat in the restaurant over a candlelight dinner talking and dreaming of what our life was going to be like together for hours and hours till we closed the place.
Feeling so in love, and like that love could conquer anything.

And you know what baby it can….even death has not quenched our love!


Love lightning my beloved…I will always be yours! :)
